Phillip J. Watt of The Mind Unleashed writes:
The ignorant vilification and unethical suppression of natural, plant-based approaches to medical issues of both a mental and physical nature has long been exposed for the world to see.
However, usually the proponents of pharmaceutically-derived mechanistic medicine point to the high success of the industry, but considering that in the US alone around 290 people die from prescription drugs each day and over 250 thousand people are dying from medical errors each year, this is simply not true.
A Discovery article makes it clear why medical errors are the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States of America:
People don’t just die from bacteria and heart plaque, they die from communication breakdowns, fragmented healthcare, diagnostic mistakes, and over-dosing,” said Martin Makary, a professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore and lead author of the study.
They also refer to the suspicious lack of reporting of medical errors that the US and other governments of the world fail to publicise:
Along with more than 100 other nations, the United States uses a system for collecting national health statistics — recommended by the World Health Organization — that does not keep track of medical errors.
This obviously brings the entire medical paradigm into question. Of course there have been many amazing successes from the modern approach to medical care, such as surgery and some pharmaceuticals. These tools have been an invaluable addition to humanity, yet how do we know which so-called modern medicines are actually worthy to disperse at large and which are not?
How do we know when a really important medicine has been developed in comparison to a pill that is primarily for profit?
How do we know when a pharma drug is unncessary because there are more natural and effective remedies available?
When we consider the corruption and collusion that exists within an industry that has been monopolised as part of the corporatocracy, it really is difficult to know. As I spelled out in a previous article:
Anybody with any knowledge on the medical industry will know that it has long been corrupted by big money and big pharma. It is important that we start off with this established truth, because we have to understand that the pharmaceutical-industrial complex will one day be looked at by the mainstream mentality as we now look at the tobacco industry: deceptive, fraudulent, criminal and unethical.
To crystallize this point, in the same article I refer to the great journalism provided in a Collective Evolution article:
In the past few years more professionals have come forward to share a truth that, for many people, proves difficult to swallow. One such authority is Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.
Dr. Horton recently published a statement declaring that a lot of published research is in fact unreliable at best, if not completely false.
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”
In the same article, another confronting truth is quoted by Dr. Marcia Angell, a longtime medical journal editor:
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.”
Keeping this in mind, when we combine it with the serious concerns that many truth-seekers have regarding the profit-before-morality model that has slithered its way into the various control-systems which influence every aspect of our lives, it becomes clear that the medical-industrial complex and our pursuit for effective health-care needs to be immediately tabled for an open, transparent and unbiased investigation to occur.
Seriously, how long can we as a society allow this dysfunction to harm not just ourselves, but our kids too?
How long will the masses just pretend that tribal cultures didn’t have access to a plethora of plant medicines which heal and develop the mind, body and soul?
